Vitamin E Succinate Continues to Show Impressive Anti-Cancer Properties

Several recent short-term intervention studies failed to show vitamin E supplementation was protective against the development of various cancers, most notably lung and prostate cancer. In fact, in the SELECT study, individuals taking vitamin E supplements showed a 17 percent higher incidence of prostate cancer. In the SELECT study, researchers used a synthetic form of vitamin E known as dl-alpha tocopherol acetate. Some experts have argued this form of vitamin E has only half the potency of natural forms of vitamin E, and thus was a poor candidate for use in this and other trials. Others argue synthetic vitamin E competes with natural vitamin E (both tocopherols and tocotrienols) for receptor binding sites and other processes, reducing the cell’s vitamin E antioxidant defenses and/or reducing other anti-cancer effects afforded by natural vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol).1-10,19 Still others have implied vitamin E succinate should be the form of vitamin E used in intervention trials aimed at reducing cancer incidence, as it is the form of vitamin E with the strongest current research support as an anti-cancer agent.20 Adding to the confusion are recent studies that suggest ...

Although you can magnify the screen image to ease your vision on any laptop, having a larger display to start with can make things easier. But larger screen comes with more weight, different processing specs, and even different screen resolutions and construction. Such is the case when comparing Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro with the 15-inch MacBook Pro. I would have thought the only difference between these two models would be, well, two inches. But that’s not even remotely the case.  Both screen sizes have Apple’s renowned Retina display. The 13-inch model (it’s technically 13.3 inches) has an  LED-backlit display with IPS technology; 2560-by-1600 native resolution at 227 pixels per inch with support for millions of colors. That said, the 13.3-inch model with a Touch Bar—Apple’s on-screen shortcut menu—also has True Tone technology in its screen. The 15-inch MacBook ...

Gas grills are the most popular for backyard cooking, and Weber is the best known quality brand of gas grills. Memorial Day is the unofficial start of outdoor cooking season across the country, and for the next few months backyard chefs will grill, smoke, roast and occasionally burn dishes as they try to outdo themselves and their neighbors. According to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association’s (HPBA) 2019 State of the Industry survey, seven in ten U.S. adults have at least one grill, more than half of new purchases where second (or more) grills, and 83% of consumers have three or more dedicated grilling accessories. It’s a topic I have been covering here at Forbes and elsewhere for years, so when I was asked to curate a list of items available at Amazon.com, I did not realize how difficult it would be, because they have just about everything from bestsellers to obscure brands of cooking hard...
